And your other name is Rippley?

No date that I spotted. I'll say '82, though. In fact, I'll go out on a limb and pretend this is Trivia Q of the Day and say the footage is from 5/21/82.

Really neat interview, footage, everything! Thanks for posting, Rippley and/or beep*

Just the beep. The spawn of a man and a most unfortunate telephone answering machine.

Speaking of answering machines,

If you want to know how old a person is just call their answering machine, take the number of seconds that pass between the end of the greeting and the "beep", multiply by 10.

This does not apply to people who let their kids record the greeting. They have their own issues.

OK, back to our regular programming.

greek 81 by the fact that Jerry is on Phil's Side (aka stage right, audience left) (at least I recall the video showing the stage setup thus-been a while since I saw it). They swapped (Duke) Spring '82... that's when Phil began playin' on the right ('correct') side

Was Phil still on a 4-string? Seems like it (when was his migration to 6?, anybody recall?)


Anybody else equate Phil's side w/stage right & Jerrry's die with stage left? I still, to this day, label any stage side this way...

I believe Phil switched to the 6-string Modulus in 1983. This looks the brief period when he played a Fender Jazz. From there, it was a G&L bass and then the Modulus.

Yeah, that hit me later. (Duh.) But they're opening with Bertha (or seem to be), so it can't be 9/11 or 9/12. I have those shows, but didn't think to search the archives, and there was also (double duh) a 9/13. Bertha is the second tune. But this seems to be a cold start and that day they go into it from Jack Straw. Still, probably this one:

I believe the first Modulus shows were the NYE run in '82.

edit: Looked at it again and it's not a cold start after all; got fooled by the edit. How visually illiterate of me. So I do think it's gotta be 9/13/81. I've either not heard that one or forgotten it, but I like this Bertha ... now I've got yet another show to check out. (However does THAT happen?)
